Dear Fulton Family,

I am one of countless boys who played football for Karl on the Westgate Hawks and at West High. I am sorry for your loss.

To Karlos, Vida, and Mrs. Fulton.
I am deeply saddened to hear of Coach Fulton's
passing. We are so sorry for your lose.
Coach Fulton was one of the greatest role models a young man could ever have.
Playing for the Hawks will always be a highlight of my life.

To Karl's family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I personally never met him, but my sons played in his pee wee football league on the Packers. What a joy he provided for all those boys and their families! I remember the finale at Franklin Heights with all the teams lined up. Thank you, Karl, for the unselfishness you showed by devoting so much time to the youth on the West Side.

Karl was an assistant coach for the West reserve football team in 1968, my sophomore year. I remember him as a kind man but stern enough to get his point across.He will be missed by many. Please accept my condolences.

Sorry for your loss may you draw comfort from the Bible at Hosea 13:14. L Ohio

My deepest condolences to family and friends during This difficult time.may all take comfort from meditateing on fond memories.

Karl (Mr Fulton) you are a Trailblazer in many ways...especially in developing and training youth in football and life. I will always remember all the unique help you gave me as the first African American to play for the Westgate Hawks....Ron Hill
